I built this queen size bed for my daughters graduation gift.
Lock miter posts with 5/4 rift sawn stock.
Solid oak panels in TnG rail and style frame.
Locking rail hardware from Lee Valley.
Tinted coffee dye stain with General Finishes clear satin finish.
I took a month off from client work for this project.

I have been absent from LJ for quite a bit, not that I did not follow along but was so busy with client work I am just to tired to post most days. Since I started my one man little shop I have been overwhelmed at times with a client work.
I must be doing something right.
The shop has paid the balance due after scholarships and grants through a private midwest collage.
She graduated with honors and now has no collage debt.

I intend to post some of the projects I have built in the near future for you all to see.
There are tables, mantles, lamps and dozens of others.
Not often I get to work on a project for my girl so I enjoyed it in many ways, even her grandfather was active working on this project at 84 years old.
thanks for looking!
